SAS Group Buy Scheme
Group budget protection for Staff Absence and Wellbeing Services
SAS provides a Group Buy Scheme (GBS) as an alternative to the traditional absence insurance cover available on the market.
The GBS is designed specifically for groups of schools within the same Trust, Local Authority or Diocese, looking to purchase collaboratively. Schools pool their funds together into a single account for payment of absences on agreed terms.
The GBS combines the best features of other market alternatives along with exclusive GBS benefits:
prices for 3 years including ongoing
Return of surplus
funds to group members
included as standard
No GP contact
required for absence
Full flexibility on
e.g choice of waiting
days, daily amounts etc.

to Schools every
As industry experts, with over 20 years’ experience, SAS have developed the GBS service as an alternative solution for school absence management.
Our research has shown more School and Academy groups are considering self-funding arrangements due to budget restraints. This option, however, does come with its financial risks as staff costs often make up the majority of the schools’ budget. The GBS solution will protect your school’s budget against absence costs; whilst also providing wellbeing support to staff and having the added benefit of surplus funds being returned.
